Yep.. it's normal for Jack Dempsey to hide in caves and in the dark. I saw a tank once with a 10" jack male an 8" female and over 30 fry that were 2-3". The tank was completly devoid of fish to look at. They were all hiding in the decorations lol.

Mine hide all the time when I had them.

As Ladayen said, nothing to worry about, good idea on adding caves.
